Author Gregg Caruso, who has written some really useful academic books on free will has a new project ont he go which looks fascinating. Check it out. Here is the email he sent me:


    I am currently working on a new book that readers of your blog may be interested in: SCIENCE AND RELIGION: 5 QUESTIONS–a collection of interviews with some of the world’s leading philosophers, scientists, theologians, apologists, and atheists. Contributors include the “World’s Top Thinker” (Prospect Magazine, 2013), a Nobel Prize winning physicist, three “Humanist of the Year” winners, three Templeton Prize winners, the “Most Influential Rabbi in America” (Newsweek, 2012), a National Humanities Medal Winner, a National Medal of Science Winner, a Star of South Africa Medal winner, a Carl Sagan Award for Public Understanding of Science winner, and many more! 

    The book will not be published until mid-2014 but I just set up a Facebook page for it. I will occasionally post updates, articles of interest, videos, and debates involving the contributors on the FB page. I’m sure it will be of interest to your readers since contributors include some of the world’s leading atheists–e.g., Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Susan Blackmore, Simon Blackburn, James Randi, Michael Shermer, Victor Stenger, Lawrence Krauss, Rebecca Goldstein, Michael Ruse, Owen Flanagan, Alex Rosenberg, John Searle, Sean Carroll, etc.

    It will be interesting to see how this project develops.
